Mike O What they all said above. You really need the tool to press against the near side of the caliper to force it back. The Harbor Freight kit is set up for this.

felixthecat I'd pass on that square tool, spend more or rent/borrow one.

sleepyboy You may need a tool that's better than the simple square one. Check out the autoparts store for a brake tool kit to rent. I know Harbor Freight has one HERE.

photn02 Hi All,

Just tried to replace my pads with new ones, Had the tool and everything, this thread was very helpfull.

However, whilst the tool helped quite alot the piston wouldnt compress far enough to fit both new pads on, only one. if i spun it anti clockwise it would expand and then if i spun it back it would compress, but it never went far enough to completely go back in.

Any thoughts or ideas?
